Escape the week with a full sensory experience of Alien Listening: Voyager's Golden Record and Music from Earth by Daniel K. L. Chua and Alexander Rehding with this Spotify list featuring the Golden Record songs: https://hubs.ly/H0ZY20C0
In 1977 NASA shot a mixtape into outer space. The Golden Record aboard the Voyager spacecrafts contained world music and sounds of Earth to represent humanity to any extraterrestrial civilizations. To date, the Golden Record is the only human-made object to have left the solar system. Alien Listening asks the big questions that the Golden Record raises: Can music live up to its reputation as the universal language in communications with the unknown? How do we fit all of human culture into a time capsule that will barrel through space for tens of thousands of years? And last but not least: Do aliens have ears?
Explore these fascinating questions in Alien Listening : Voyager's Golden Record and Music from Earth by Daniel K. L. Chua and Alexander Rehding and published with our partners at Zone Books. Out today in North America and 9 November in the UK/Europe. https://hubs.ly/H0XgjQz0
